Incorporating CBD Into Your Yoga Routine.

Yoga is an ancient practice said to have originated thousands of years ago in India. It is still being used today and here is why...
Regular yoga practice brings benefits to your physical and mental health. During yoga, you become aware of your breathing and body. It offers you a great opportunity to observe your thoughts and look inward, creating a sense of being one with your mind and body. During and after practice, different meditation techniques are incorporated, like deep breathing, visualizing, and repeating mantras.
CBD is a non-psychoactive compound from the cannabis Sativa plant. It is known for its therapeutic benefits, such as relieving stress and anxiety as well as reducing soreness and inflammation of the muscles. This combination enhances your yoga practice and maximizes the benefits of both therapies.
If yoga and CBD are so great, why do I need both?
Any experienced yogi will tell you, yoga works with your body no matter the level of challenge you are capable of that day. While some yoga poses encourage body flexibility, other poses require more balance, strength, and focus. This is where CBD is useful. Because of the calming benefits, CDB can bring your practice to the next level through a sense of calm and focus as well and can help with sore muscles after your practice.
Ok but CDB, where do I start?
Ah! I am happy you ask. So, before you start your practice, we suggest using CBD oil, also known as a tincture. We recommend a premium-grade, broad-spectrum oil. When using an oil, it is a good idea to use the same dose for a few days to see how you feel. The dosage can be adjusted as needed in accordance with the product label. Then after your practice, you can use a topical CBD, as a cream to target areas where you might experience soreness or pain.
